Another Christmas Over

Phew so we all survived Christmas for another year!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and has been enjoying the holidays.

I had a relaxing Christmas Eve staying with my family on the farm and my entree of Crayfish and Prawn Cocktails were an absolute hit, I'll be sure to share the recipe soon.

Oh and the turkey that huge 4kg bird I was so worried about went into the Weber 8am Christmas morning and 2 hours later came out bbq-ed to perfection. It survived the long drive to Mr P's family and was carved up for Christmas lunch and tasted amazing. We spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool drinking cocktails .... a perfect Aussie Xmas!

It's been scorchingly hot this week with temps in the high 30s - low 40s which doesn't leave much energy other than to sloth inside in the air conditioning watching my favourite lifestyle channels. I do want to paint the front of the house but I would fry like an egg in the heat of the sun and the paint would dry up before it hit the wall!
So a few days of relaxing until the temps cool down is in order .... I think that's my icy cocktail calling me now .... Happy Holidays!
Tell me how was your Christmas Day?
Were your Christmas Day dishes a success?

Pin It Now!


  1. Those cocktails look AMAZING!! Am looking forward to seeing the recipe :)

    My Christmas was more sloth like than usual....our air con broke so lunch was a little painful! I raced to the beach as early as I could (the bonus to being single- no rushing between family breakfast/lunches and dinners!)

  2. Painting in this weather is most definitely out of the question! Enforced relax time, yay!

    I had a lovely Christmas, my various dishes for three different Christmas events involved a garden salad, a cous cous and roast veggie salad, a pavlova, mini bruschetta and mini quiches. Just finished my last do tonight (a Christmas high tea!) so feeling quite glad it's all over now!

    Merry Christmas to you as well :)

  3. So glad you had a wonderful Christmas! Your cocktails look AWESOME! Have a happy New Year! :]

  4. Mmm, I'm loving the looks and sounds of the crayfish and prawn cocktails. We did a big baked ham this year and are still trying to finish it off! Ham stirfry, anyone?

    Happy New Year! x

  5. Oh my goodness, Michelle, those prawn and crayfish cocktails look amazing! What a lovely way to spend Christmas afternoon, at the pool sipping cocktails:) x
